THR's Women in Entertainment 2011: Power 100
"This was the year of the big deal for me," says Winograde, ABC's top business affairs executive. She sealed the network's new deal to air the Academy Awards through 2020, secured the Country Music Awards and talent pacts for the final season of Desperate Housewives, and finalized a much buzzed-about arrangement with Warner Bros. Television that will likely set the standard for digital rights allocations between studios and networks.
In addition to managing a staff of 125, Winograde, 47, recently took over first-run syndication, meaning she was tasked with negotiating with Katie Couric and producer Jeff Zucker for Katie, which will launch next fall. "That was a challenge because I had never done a first-run syndication or a news deal," she notes. The interior-design buff spends her free time on extreme makeovers. "I really like buying and remodeling houses and flipping them."
